Domaine Vocoret Vaillon Chablis Premier Cru 2018
As the goal is the best terroir expression, all grapes are carefully sorted by hand before going in the pneumatic press. Fermentation happens in stainless steel, except for the 1er Cru Vieilles Vignes and Grand Cru cuvées, which are fermented and aged entirely in demi-muids and large foudres. The Chablis Village is made nearly entirely in stainless steel. All of the wines are racked off the lees after malolactic fermentation finishes, normally after about six months. Vocoret’s goal, in his words, is to make wines “that show the fresh, crisp minerality of Chablis.” This goal is acheived in spades across the board, the wines are text book examples of the best that Chablis has to offer.
